    Risky Business Edition … did the kid invite any friends from the Days Inn?

      In my experience as a private school teenager, the spawn of the most wealthy parents were those most likely to steal from, and/or vandalize people’s homes.

      • JimPB

        I don’t have data comparing the stealing from and/or vandalizing of people’s home for “the spawn of the most wealthy parents” vs. the children of low income parents, but I do know that there were among the spawn a not trivial number who engage in serious, recidivistic misconduct. Perhaps the early beginnings of the white collar crime whose cost towers over that of street crime.

    Kindle Fire…. Really? Thats it.. Check the couch.. They walk in unlocked doors all the time and steal things..

    Like my keys

    • Yup

      + 1; my couch is a klepto – it particularly likes remote controls. Why steal a kindle fire? If money is no object (because I’m, well, STEALING), I’d go for the high end ipad.

        My former housemates bought a sofa set at a garage sale.

        Two months later, someone thought to vacuum under the cushions. Voila–the former sofa owners’ TV remote.

    That’s kind of funny, although if it happened to me I’d be pissed. Who takes the time to set up and play a game of beer pong before committing grand theft larceny?

    • kevin

      maybe they didnt intend to commit grand theft larcency, but after a nice buzz it seemed like a good idea!

    • NorthArlingTim

      I keep reading this as “beer bong”.

  • I don’t think the youth will be asked to house sit again. There went a good business opportunity!!

  • MC 703

    I had to go back and check the beer pong incident’s address. Thought it was the same one. Dang!

  • bman

    Has anyone linked those previous people getting hit by cars in arlington and running into the street (was it 50 or 66?) in the early morning and banging on garage doors of buildings, to bath salts?

    • there’s a theory

      Bath salts – the kind you inhale or whatever OR the fruity lavender stuff you soak in?

  • PikerGirl

    So is this incident at 4700 Columbia Pike related to the one that occurred on July 25 at 9 am at same general address when armed robbers made a clerk open a safe at the checking cashing store? Maybe they could not get into the safe on night of July 22 and came back another time to make the clerk do it.
